David O. Stewart appears at the 2012 Library of Congress National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: "I write about episodes in our history that I need to make sense of, episodes that are not well understood and also are centrally important to America's development as a nation." So says David O. Stewart, author of the recent "American Emperor: Aaron Burr's Challenge to Jefferson's America." After practicing law for more than 25 years, David O. Stewart turned to writing history (though he still practices law). He is also president of the Washington Independent Review of Books, an online publication.
